Seattle Times letters to the editor

Blaming Bush

Don’t waste time looking back

Please pass along a tip of the reader’s cap to Leonard Pitts Jr. for his column recommending against investigations or prosecutions for members of the Bush administration [“Before beating up on Bush and Co., look in the mirror,” Opinion, May 24].

Nothing we can do now will undo what transpired over the last eight years. It would be a major-league mistake to divert any congressional attention away from real efforts to solve the nation’s problems and preparations for the future.

I will admit that seeing Dick Cheney in an orange jumpsuit might make me smile, but right now the public should not be clamoring for some ill-conceived “justice.” Let’s sit back, look to the future and see if we can answer the question: Was the nation’s worst president Andrew Johnson or George W. Bush?

— Chris Fruitrich, Seattle
